Whether it’s artisanal sourdough or sliced white, we all love bread. It’s Homemade Bread Day on November 17th, so we thought we’d inspire you with some ways to break some bread and (of course) share some wine with friends and family!
Our easy-drinking Two Tails Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with subtly spiced cured meats and sausages. Its aromatic and silky palate matches particularly well with venison, a mild chorizo or with cheeses. Why not create an enticing platter of Dukkah-coated venison back straps, make your own rub here; or home-made cured sausages (Russell’s recipe can be found here) add some delicious vintage cheddar to your platter, and now you just need a glass of Two Tails Pinot Noir!
The Irish classic wheaten bread goes perfectly with these party-friendly foods, and is, coincidentally, the easiest bread in the world to make!
Combine 500g of flour (we suggest half wholemeal, half white), 100g porridge oats and a teaspoon each of bicarbonate of soda and salt with 25g of butter. Rub the butter into the dry ingredients before stirring in 500 ml buttermilk. Bring the dough together very lightly, shape into a loaf and score a deep cross in the top. Bake this for 30 to 35 minutes at 200C/gas mark 6/fan 180C until the base sounds hollow.
Perfect for platters laden with meats, cheeses and of course Two Tails wine!
For a twist on your bread, try the New Zealand classic fried bread and add either a tangy goat cheese or a salty feta. Both are great partners for our crisp Two Tails Sauvignon Blanc. Truly, a match made in heaven – the crunch of the bread and the dry, sharp flavour of the cheeses are the perfect foil for the generous and juicy palate of the wine.
Two Tails Pinot Gris, like our Sauvignon Blanc, pairs well with seafood; we suggest serving a platter of flash fried and succulent prawns or calamari, add crunchy breadsticks or toasted rustic bread to accompany our silky, densely flavoured summer favourite. It’s also a great match for pork rillet with cress, fresh figs and a dollop of onion jam. And if you want to add some cheese, try Haloumi and Gouda!
So why not order your mixed case of Two Tails wine and create your very own perfect platter combination?
